    Borders define States. The AALS conference venue San Diego sits near a important border crossing with Mexico with an active presence of both Mexican and U.S. border patrols. Even though territorial borders remain guarded, certain types of international borders have been collapsing with advances in communication, technology, and science, This session will explore how relevant borders are for the contemporary practice of public international law. With commentary from national scholars in international environment law, international trade law, security law, and human rights, this panel will explore the evolution of concept of "borders" in international law. Scholars will engage the question of how relevant "borders" are in their field of international law. The session will have a breakout session at the end to allow for networking among interested law faculty and an exchange of conversation over current research projects.

    Business meeting at program conclusion.
